Some edited video documentation of the Hidden Life Of Bridges public art event in Portland, Oregon, in September / October 2011

Here’s a video that Ed shot under the Morrison Bridge. None of the sound of the above video has been shifted in pitch – different vehicles traveling at different velocities make different sounds when driving over the bridges. Our project will generate real-time, live ‘music’ out of the sounds of the traffic moving across the Hawthorne Bridge – ranging from skateboards and footsteps to cars and trucks.

Take a look at this video to see what it’s like when the Morrison Bridge opens and you’re standing inside it!

And here’s a quick interview with Tim, Ed and Tony Lester from the Bridge Section talking with Peggy Kendellen from RACC about the project. Interview shot and edited by John Henry Dale.
